Better late than not at all!


Sorry I'm way behind schedule today, but as they say better late than not at all! It's been a scorcher of a day here in the UK & I had an unexpected invite to a birthday celebration, it was lovely in the sunshine celebrating with my friend.

Anyway, I managed to squeeze in time whilst tea was cooking to make this card ...

It's been a while since I used Uniko Studio digital products so I thought I'd give them a whirl! I originally planned it to be a one layer hybrid card but it turned out to be a layered card instead, mounting the digital panel onto a lovely Sweet Blush card base.

Here is a close up of the digital images ...


1. Open Adobe Photoshop & create a custom sized document. Mine was 8 X 13 cm, the size I wanted my panel to be. making your document the size it will be cut to makes placing & centring images easier.

2. Open another custom document 4 x 4 cm. I then placed the Certainly Celery Gingham digital paper from Classics Summer into the document & resized slightly using the transform option. I then flattened the layers to be able to copy & paste to my first document.

3. Once I was happy with the placement of my gingham square I added a new layer to my document. With the new layer selected I used the butterfly brush from English Country Garden digital collection. I then used the transform tool to rotate & change the size until I was happy.

4. I repeated the process for the second smaller butterfly. 

5. The last step was to type the sentiment. I typed what I wanted, in this case 'Thank you' then I selected the font & size I wanted. 

6. Print document, measure & cut panel to size.

7. Tie ribbon & adhere scalloped edge.

8. Adhere to base card using foam adhesive for dimension.

I'd have liked to of made a short video showing you how quick & easy this card was to make but my neighbours house alarm has been going off all day :( very frustrating. IF the alarm plays nice tomorrow I'll add a video! 

The colours for the card were from the current Dynamic Duos challenge colours HERE and seen below...

 That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by.
